Breaking Bad 515 Jesse

Breaking Bad was Sunday's top cable program with a 3.2 way up from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. NFL Countdown and Real Housewives of New Jersey tied for second with each earning a 1.1. NFL Countdown was even with last week, while Real Housewives of New Jersey was up from a 1.0.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our principal source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100.

    Wow Disney channel, I guess liv and maddie is fine for disey channel, let’s hope wander does well because I’m liking the new shows on Disney channel, all they have to do now is cancel dog with a blog and fish hooks and they are sorted

  • Oliver

    I’d like to know how the Community premiere marathon did on Comedy Central.

  • Matthew

    Devious going strong… I hope witches of eastwick can match devious numbers it looks really cool

  • Oliver

    Yikes, Low Winter Sun didn’t even make the list.

  • josh

    Breaking bad is a monster I will miss it so much :(

  • Matthew

    East end not eastwick that was another show and it was pretty bad haha

  • Andrew

    Glad to see that Dexter beat Boardwalk Empire:)

    Hey Nick,
    Can you please post ratings for Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown on CNN at 9PM and Ridiculous and Adam Richman’s Fandemonium on Travel at 8PM/9PM if possible? Thanks a lot!

  • Bram

    Imagine people turn away from AMC right when they see Mark Strong’s face. Low Winter Sun is a goner.

  • John A

    Great for Breaking Bad. Best episode of series and would have worked as the finale for me. Dexter down a week before the finale. Ray Donovan a bit of a loser for Showtime. Nice for Devious Maids.

  • Jon23812

    Disney Channel did well Sunday. Sundays have goos shows and Fridays have mediocre/bad shows, except for WOY and GF.

  • AllOfHerTwist

    Breaking Bad is jonesing some huge numbers!

  • Serena

    It’s bad how Disney channel Fridays are the regect days now, especially when Jessie or gravity falls is not premiering, but wander over yonder is excellent and just a funny animation.

  • poweranimals

    Well now that kids are back to school the 9pm timeslot is really hurting SIU. Personally I think Disney basically sabatoged the show by putting it on so late.

  • BrieK

    Well deserved for Breaking Bad. That was one action-packed episode. I can’t believe there are two episodes left.

  • TV Addict

    Is it safe to assume that Community will become the new Big Ban Theory and completely dominate all other cable shows in syndication?
    What? You say it’s not safe to assume that?
    Yeah I guess…

  • Kevin

    Can you please post ratings for Low Winter Sun? Thanks.

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    WWE Main Event and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • Michael

    Great episode of Devious Maids on Sunday night. I hope the ratings can climb an all time high for the season finale next week. Everything will be revealed, including Flora’s death. I think I know who’s the culprit behind it.

  • FlorianNz

    @Kevin

    Low Winter Sun averaged 1 million viewers and 0.4 A18–49 & A25–54.

  • olebud03

    @Kevin
    Low Winter Sun’s ratings were…LOW. Apparently VERY LOW considering it didn’t even crack the list which bottoms out at 0.3 A18-49.
